More Mini Christmas Stockings

September 19, 2017 1 comment

We have been making mini Christmas stockings for Warmth for Warriors over at Ravelry for the past month. Cindylen of Good Things Together helped host a stocking along in which over 250 handmade mini socks were made.

I tried my hand at more crocheted waistcoat Christmas stockings. I find if I work the waistcoat stitch only on the chart portion of the stocking, I have a much easier time crocheting the pattern. I use the waistcoat crochet mini stocking pattern and only crochet the waistcoat stitch for the chart. There are many different chart patterns that a person can use on the mini Christmas stockings. I find the ones that are about 10-12 stitches across are the best suited for the stocking fronts. Here are a few examples

Recycled Denim Mini Stockings

August 27, 2017 4 comments

We have been making mini Christmas stockings for the troops over at Ravelry. We are in the middle of a stocking-along at the Good Things Together group. I haven’t made any recycled denim stockings this year and figured it was time. So I broke out the sewing machine and stitched up 3 denim stocking shells.

I added crocheted tops to each of the 3 denim stockings. Here are the final results.

The stocking-along is for mini Christmas stockings that will be sent to the Warmth for Warriors organization. Each year people handcraft the little stockings and then they are filled with small goodies and shipped off to the troops.

Last year over 1900 mini stockings filled with soaps, toiletries, and candies were sent to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. The handmade stockings filled with goodies are a wonderful way to say thank you to our troops and give them a little Christmas cheer during the holidays.

Here is the link to my mini denim Christmas stocking tutorial. It is very simple to cut two pieces of denim from old jeans and stitch them together. Once that is done, you just add 3-4 rows

Mini Cuffed Christmas Stocking Pattern

October 1, 2016 2 comments

I make many mini Christmas stockings each year for the Warmth for Warriors group. I decided I wanted to try a new crochet pattern to change things up a bit on my stocking making and came up with this new pattern. I took my cuffed baby booties pattern and tweaked it to create this mini cuffed Christmas stocking. The pattern is easy and can be crocheted in less than an hour plus it is free so enjoy the crochet pattern below.

Mini Christmas Cuffed Stocking Pattern

Crochet hook: H (5 mm) hook
Yarn: 3/4 oz Worst Weight Yarn (42-50 yards depending on yarn)
Finished size: 6 inches tall, 4.75” wide at toe, & 2.75” wide at top.

Rnd 1
Ch 2, work 9 Sc in 2nd ch from hook. (You can also start with a magic circle and work 9 Sc’s in circle.) Don’t join as the toe section is worked in rounds without joining. Place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round. (9 sts)

Crocheting More Mini Christmas Stockings

Here are ten more mini Christmas stockings that I crocheted for the troops. These are my final contribution to the 2014 Warmth for Warriors Stocking Drive. The organization fills the stockings with goodies and are distributed as little Christmas gifts to the troops.

These socks were crocheted using Sucrette’s mini sock pattern. I only crocheted the pattern to 6 inches long so I adjusted the original pattern just a bit to make my stockings smaller.
